never used it before, don't know where to get it. can i just go to dicks and pick some up? im not sure if my gym allows it, its a bit of a globo gym type place, but i lift late at night so im not sure if anyone would see me...in case i were to get caught, could i use strongman stickum?

Just use it and don't ever ask, I use to take mine in an ice cream container and no one complained.

Go to someplace that sells rock climbing equipment (an outdoors store like REI or similar). They will have chalk. If your gym doesn't like the mess you can also get a thing called an Eco-Ball at the same place. It still works but is much less messy.

I agree about not asking if it's okay, though. Just use it till told otherwise (or be safe and just get the Eco-Ball).

Just go get some, use it, and spread it everywhere you lift in the gym; it's like marking your territory.

Mountain Equipment Co-op. Climbing chalk mess less mess and seems stickier. The chalk balls do the job well.

I just purchased some chalk from Mountain co-op today. Cost me 4 bucks.

where is the closest mountain coop in toronto? I got my chalk from Dotmar in sauga.

woops sorry for hijacking the thread. but yeah if you know any rock climbing store, you'll find it there. I think crack is easier to find than chalk around here where i live :D

I always just steal my chalk from people who leave it at the gym. Have you tried that?

no one uses it at my gym. i am the only person that does deads or squats at my gym. it is basically globo gym. and i would totally yank someones chalk if they left it there, haha.

If you go to a globo type gym, I'd advise just getting an Eco-ball, less likely to set off a "serious lifter" alarm.

At my gym you can just walk behind the counter and grab the chalk from back there...I love my ghetto little gym :) There's actually some crazy strong powerlifters there..Kaz broke a world record in a group truck pull w/ some of the guys there

I got a ton off bodybuilding.com. I couldn't find anything in Toronto except a place in Mississauga. But I'm glad I bought a ton of it because now I'm selling it at my store for 10x the amount I bought it for.

Dotmar?

Not sure of the name of the place but most likely. It was a rock climbing place. But ya I didn't want to take the drive down there so I just ordered a bunch from bodybuilding.com.

My father-in-law works for a school district, and he hooked me up with about 8 blocks of chalk for free! Must have stolen it from the gymnastics team. ;)
